Hello 🙂 I’m back! I don’t know about you, but I would have thought spending a few hundred pounds on an item would mean you should be really happy with it, and excited and pleased with your purchase.
My old computer more or less died before Christmas, it was only eight years old which seemed so young? Apparently not. So I bought this shiny new one in the January sales.
It’s very different.
I don’t get on with ‘change’ very well.
My son got it out of the box for me, switched it on and handed it to me up and running. I managed to download most of what I needed … Microsoft office (Word) … I’m still in the process of moving my photograph files and document files. By the time I finish no doubt this new laptop will be out of date and I’ll need another new one.
The one thing I really wanted was to be able to log into my blog here at WordPress. And it was the one thing that proved the most difficult. I could have asked my son, but I thought at my age I ought to be able to manage my own computer ‘stuff’. I kept going round in a loop of sending ‘help’ messages for a new password, unable to contact a real person. I got very fed up.
However, after many days searching through my trashed email files I found the one from several years ago, with the transaction i.d. that I needed in order to get through to an actual person on WordPress. Then I had to sort myself out a new email address for this login. Finally, this morning …. I was able to log in!
I can’t tell you how excited I was! It’s so good to be back! I’m still a little worried I might just disappear again, but hopefully I’ve got it sorted.
And I did it myself! With a little help from the WordPress person 🙂 I am so proud 🙂
I will be back to blogging properly over the weekend.
The moral of this story is: Keep going and never give up! You will amaze yourself when you discover what you can do.
